Fashion and home decor from the Nineties are back but with a decidedly cooler twist. Many concepts from that decade were a good idea with a less than stellar execution. Take “fanny packs” from the last century, for example. A belt bag that is worn around the waist that was often cheaply made and frumpy looking.
